Hello Bioconductor community,

There have been some recent changes to our workflow for creating the GO.db
annotation package. The information was previously provided in SQL file format,
but these files are no longer updated and obo files are created instead.
Accounting for this change has caused a delay in releasing the next version of
GO.db, which in turn affects the Org and TxDb packages. Instead of making the
new versions available over the weekend and potentially causing issues for
packages that depend on them, we have decided to release the next versions of
the GO.db, Org, and TxDb shortly after our Bioc 3.11 release next week. This
will allow for maintainers to make any necessary changes to their packages
without concern of making the cutoff for the release. We will announce here and
on the support site when these new versions are available.

Thank you for your patience.
